M Libby, McNeill & Libby, Chicago 1 LIFE SAVED BY LETTER “M” Great Lawyer, With Lightning Quick ness. Saw Point That Resulted in Freedom for Client. Has picturesqueness departed from the bar? Either the lawyers of today cling too tenaciously to what is simply practical or else the reports of trials omit the most Interesting features. It was not always so. Thaddeus Stevens once saved a man’s life by a single letter. He was defending a prisoner indicted for mur der. and the chief witness against the culprit testified that he had heard him exclaim: “By God. I have shot him.” The great Stevens insisted that maybe the prisoner had said: “My God. I have shot him ” The change of the letter “B” to an “M” in the first word of each sentence would make a mighty difference, since the latter expression might be one of surprise or exclamation over an acci dental shooting. The witness con fessed that perhaps the prisoner had said "my” instead of “by,” and the jury freed him. This was the Stevens who years be fore had saved S3OO to buy law’ books and then spent it to purchase freedom for a slave boy whom he chanced to see upon an auction block. It was also the same Stevens who was re sponsible for the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson. —Colum- bus Dispatch.

The Indian rope trick, which no one who has seen it performed has ever satisfactorily explained, is “explain ed by J. N. Maskelyne, an English writer. Mr. Maskelyne dismisses the trick as follows: Indian conditions of at mosphere are necessary to the suc cess of the trick The spectators face the setting sun and are sheltered from it by an awning The rope used is evidently a jointed bamboo with the joints made to lock. Up this "rope” or “pole" a boy climbs to a height of about 30 feet or so, till out of sight of the people. Then he "disappears" as though into space. What really happens, Mr. Maskelyne explains, is that tba spectators are blinded by the setting sun and that the boy climbs up the pole or rope and then drops quickly to the ground. Be fore the astonished onlookers know anything about it he is covered up with a sheet. This is the most ingenious attempt at an explanation of the trick yet made, but it will not appear conclusive to all who have witnessed the per formance The trick has been witness ed at Khandalla—a hill station near Bombay—and again at Delhi at mid day, without any awning being used or any effects but the rope. EDUCATION NOT ALL MENTAL Man Who Could Not Swim Is Refused Diploma by Authorities at the Columbia University. The authorities at Columbia univer sity have refused to award a diplima to a senior who has not learned to swim the length of the pool in the gymnasium. A few years ago such action would have been deemed ab surd. There are those who are unable to swim the length of a gymnasium pool and a student’s qualifications for a degree of bachelor of arts, says the St. Paul Pioneer Press. They are the people who believe that the only bene fit to be derived from attendance at college is obtained from books. The requirements imposed at Columbia is an indication of the more practical turn that is being given to educationa.’ effort in recent times. While most boys learn to swim with out the aid of college or even common school instruction, there are few things acquired in a university of more practical value. Every one not physically disqualified should be mod erately proficient in the art of keep- in the water. It is a simple thing, easily learned and should be part of the education of even grade school children. Columbia is setting a good example in withholding a di ploma from a man who cannot swim.

By using the electric music teacher, children will find that it is an attrac tive task to learn their notes, instead of a dry lesson as hereofore, so that they will begin to take an interest in music at once, and not consider it a drudgery, says the Popular Elec tricity M. Pierre Gelis, a Paris inventor, makes the device which we illustrate here. It is based on the principle of using an electric contact plate under the music paper. By pricking each note with a sharp metal point, we make contact for an electric device carrying a hammer, so that the ham mer strikes a string or preferably a metal piece to give out the sound Thus each note or line or space gives out its corresponding sound, and it is an easy matter to read a simple piece of music in thi3 way. The device is quite an elaborate one for it is required to take care of the sharps and flats which figure per- J Electric Music Teacher. manently as the sign of the staff. Hut this is easily done by using a revolv ing contrct device to shift over the several required notes at the start. To bring buck to natural during the piece, we press on a button which restores the note for the moment. Even professional musicians will find it useful for transposing a piece into another key and this is done by observing the movement of the ham mers ar.d also a transposing chart which lies before them. SWAP CHILDREN IN DENMARK Curious System of Exchanging Little Folk During Summer Months— -Bcheme Works Well. In Denmark there is a curious sys tern of exchanging children during the summer. The country people send their little ones to the city people, and the latter send theirs to the country The state delivers free tickets, and the schools send the children accord ing to the applica’.ons from families. The children travel alone, each one wearing a ticket of identification pinned on the jacket or bodice. Should any of them go astray they are lodged at the first station whilst inquiries are made. The jjoung travelers are met at their destination by the peasants and their wives. Treated with affectionate care by these good hearted people, the children often enjoy privileges they have never known at home. There is no severe discipline nor irksome restraint. They return home full of tales about their adventures, and their mothers are de lighted to find them looking rosy cheeked, fat, and healthy. The pea3 ant women feed them well and often make them fresh clothing. The latter send their children intc the towns and volunteer guides show them the monuments and sights. Last year the principal restaurant keepers at Copenhagen gave them a series ol feats and organized little dancing par ties for their amusement. Both cate gories of children benefit by this mode of exchange, which, it may be noted is c" ’ et e d on Inexpensive line RIDDLES. What is the difference between u tunnel and an ear trumpet?

Many clever persons who consid ered themselves dress experts de clared in no uncertain Voice that the small hat would remain in fashion all through the summer and autumn; that the big picture hat was dead! This is of course pure nonsense, writes a Paris correspondent. The Parisiennes may at times adopt fash ions which appear eccentric and ex traordinary, but it rarely happens that they adopt a fashion which is unsuit able. The little close-fitting hat as originally conceived was a smart little affair, eminently suitable for winter wear. It came down closely on the head. It permitted enormous l'ur stoles and collars to be worn with comfort; it clung to the hair in a gale of wind. In short it was thoroughly suitable wear, and eclectic Parisiennes must not be blamed if the close-fitting hat was made ridiculous by ignorant per sons who did not know how to make it and by others who did not know how to wear it. With the return of summer has come the inevitable return of the wide brimmed picture hat. There has not been a summer season in which wide brimmed tuscan aud leghorn hats were more fashionable. An r ’ *hat black velvet strings are so L—utouable these hats present a delightfully picturesque ’tw^ One of the New Watteau Hats in Leg horn Straw. outline; they are —very many of them —almost exactly like the lovely hats depicted by Winterhalter in his paint ing of the Empress Eugenie and her attendant ladies. And side by side with these wide-brimmed hats we find the quaint Watteau shapes which seem like a flat plateau and which are raised to an extraordinary height at the back. In the sketch you will find a beauti ful model of a Watteau hat. The orig inal model was made of fine tuscan with a wide band of black velvet rib bon passed over the flat crown, and at the back, where the brim turned up very sharply, there was a large cluster of silver gray marabout feathers. These flat Watteau hats can be worn thrown back a little to show the hair in front or they can be raised high at the back and tilted forward to shade the face. They are quaint and original in outline, but with sum mer gowns of lace or fine muslin they will have a huge success. When Marking Clothing.

The girl who possesses one of the new lucky winkle bracelets should consider herself fortunate, for they are truly pretty. They are made of little gold winkle shells held together by slender chains, and inside each shell there is an opal, pearl, turquoise or some other gem. The opal looks specially pretty, because it has the semblance of an iridescent dewdrop, and even the “grain” show r s. Coral is fashionable now and is used for ail kinds of jewelry, from polished pear-shaped eardrops to carved pieces set in brooches and bangles. A pretty bracelet seen the other day was made of gold set with three carved pink coral roses, two small ones and one large one. Another new form of jewelry which should not be forgotten is the butter fly kind. It is made of real butter flies’ wings of the brilliant Brazilian varieties set behind rock crystal. A pretty necklet is made of narrow bars about three-quarters of an inch in length, of bright blue butterflies’ wings attached by silver chains. Whole butterflies are treated in this way and are used as brooches. When Traveling. Cotton crepe underwear, such as combinations, corset covers, drawers, night gowns, skirts, etc., are practical for traveling. They are very pretty trimmed with lace, and need no iron ing, thus enabling one to change as often as desired. Bracelet Vanity Case. Anew novelty in the jewelry world is a novelty bracelet, which is fitted with a watch-shaped vanity holder, equipped with mirror and puff The same model may be had designed for a coin-holder in place of the vanity. These bracelets are decidedly new and quite out of the ordinary for ’’fussing up.” New “Party” Frock*. Some of the prettiest “party'' frocks for little girls are made of thin voile, net or lace over silk slips. In many cases the slips have wreatfcs of artificial flowers running about the top of the hem, showing charmingly through the thin overdress. This ia trimmed with the rosea at neck and sieves. Night Light for a Sick Room. Take an ordinary wax candle and burn until the taper becomes level, then put out the flame and cover the top with a layer of salt, leaving only the blackened end of the wick ex posed. It will gire out a faint hat steady light. IN TUNE WITH SUMMER DAYS Lace Flouncing and Net in Combins tlon at Least Give to Wearer an Appearance of Coolness. Lace flouncing, combined with plain net, make the greater part of this dress. The tinted J§ bands under the scallops are of oran g e chiffon and a color fac ing of this same rhade is'also used. The sash and tiny ribbon at the neck are black. The lower part of the skirt is arranged in a new way. The once on the out side and stitched twice three-quar ters of an inch from each edge. In the space, be t ) tween the stitch ings an orange ribbon is run and ied in front, draw ing the skirt in just a little at the foot, to give the desired outline. A sleeveless slip of pale orange messa line is worn underneath. Effective Color Scheme. A scheme of orange and brown for a living room may be effectively worked out in the following manner: Wood finish, paneling, ceiling beams, etc., in a flat brown, such as walnut, Austrian oak or Flemish oak, a wains cot five feet high of the brown wood and the wall above washed with a deep, rich orange color of kalsomine. The celling between the beams washed with the same color, two tones lighter in shade. Furniture upholstered with corduroy in grayish tan or with tap estry having brown and green foliage or other combinations of color that are quiet and unobtrusive. The colors in troduced in cushions should be orange, embroidered with gold, or green and gold, or turquoise blue; in bric-a-brac, etc., old brass or pewter, Japan lac quer in brown, jade, malachite or tur quoise blue enamel. Scented Pincushions. A levender pinchusion is a dainty affair for the toilet table during the warm days, filling the room with its delicate perfume. It is very pretty when covered in pale fawn, embroidered in violet and green and the word "lavender” writ ten across in the former color to re mind one still further of the cushion’s sweet contents. Other pincushions might be made in the same way, and be filled with va rious sweet smelling herbs, such as rosemary, bergamot and lemon ver bena, while a potpourri one would be delightful. It should be covered with white mus lin and decorated daintily with ribbon work or silks in colors suggesting the flowers within. Has a Looking-glass. The girl who goes to dances and summer hops has many things in the way of accompaniments for the eve ning frock. Chief among tftese is the round reticule which carries the hand kerchief and a few other little neces saries. It is made of brocaded silk that looks at least a century old, trimmed with tarnished gold lace and Vandykes of the tiniest possible little rosebuds and forget-me-nots. The main interest about the bag is its looking-glass base. Dainty and Cool. A dressing sacque cleverly introduc ing two materials is made of pale yel low batiste and embroidered hatiste in the same shade. The lower part of the sacque and the right sleeve are made of the plain material, while the left sleeve and part of the bodice are made of the embroidered batiste. DRAPE WITH LONG CURTAINS Novel Scheme by Which Two Small Bedroom Windows May Be Made Attractive.

They were talking about being placed in difficult positions the other afternoon, when Congressman Prank Guernsey of Maine told of the unen viable expedience of a party named Rastus. Rastus and the man he worked for were in the corner grocery store one night, the congressman said, and the topic turned to deer shooting. The employer of Rastus declared he had shot a buck some time previously, the ball going through the left hind foot and landing in the head just be low the ear. Naturally the crowd laughed derisively. “You may laugh all you please,” de clared the man, holding his ground, “but I can prove it by Rastus, there, who was shooting with me! Rastus. didn’t I hit that buck in the left hind foot and back of the ear at the same time?" “Yo’ shuah did, boss,” answered Rastus, with no hesitation to speak of. “Yo’ see it war dis way, gen’men; jes’ as de boss go to shoot, de buck raise his hind foot to scratch his left car, an’ dat's how it happened.” Time’s Changes Lamented. Talk of the dog as a beast of bur den in England and one recalls the importance of the canine help in the fish transit business of the past. The carriers from the south coast towns to inland markets were once New foundland dogs. Thus the order of the team as quoted by Mr. Parker in “Highways and Byways in Surrey;’’ “Teams of two or four were har nessed together. The man would ‘cock his legs up along the sharves.’ They not only went as fast as the oaches, but they gained time who;) the coaches stopped to change horses.

Unfortunates’ Yearly Feast. At Fosdyke, a tiny village in Eng land, there is held every year a most quaint dinner known as the Bede house feast. Some gentleman, many years back, left a sum of money with which a number of Bede houses were to be built, and once a year he direct ed that the occupants were to have a feast. Every year the six old ladies and the six old gentlemen meet the trustees and have dinner. Some of the trustees are county councilors and the like, but according to the terms of the will they have to serve the old people first and make them comfort able. The guests always sit in the same order as the number of their houses, and the menu must include a bowl of punch and a veal pie with plums in It. Naturally So.

Everybody knowß that boiled milk keeps much more satisfactorily In warm weather than raw' milk —in fact, boiling milk is the one sure way of keeping it on a sultry day. But to many persons the taste of boiled milk is unpalatable, and to others even its odor is unpleasant. To overcome these two faults, try boiling the milk in a tightly-closed double boiler. Do not remove the cover, but allow' the inilk to stay over the fire in the double boiler for ten minutes after the water has begun to boil. Then put the milk, still tightly covered, immediately on the ice and cool it quickly. You can believe every word an hon- j eat politician tells you—but first find your honest politician.

A farmer in one of the neighboring townships, who had gone into scien tific poultry raising, hit upon the scheme of marking each egg with cer tain data in indelible ink. His idea was to find which variety of chickens laid best, and then, when the eggs were hatched, attach a ta* to the chicken’s legs. He soon found that his hired man was negligent about properly Inscribing the eggs.
